It’s turkey time and that alone is exciting news. But Baltimore has more in store for food lovers this week, from oysters to ice cream to a brand new sake bar and beer garden. Take a look at what’s happening in Charm City food news this week:
While lots of people were looking to avoid politics over Thanksgiving dinner, Rebecca Malstrom decided to wear a Black Lives Matter shirt to the family gathering. It may have defied her family, but the internet liked the way she went around the rules.
Thanksgiving travelers flying out of BWI this week should be relieved to hear the airport has a couple improvements being unveiled today that should reduce pedestrian congestion.
The Thanksgiving weekend is set to provide some time off. But time with family always leaves you looking for excuses to get out of the house, and then there’s shopping. It may not be ideal, but if you head downtown, at least the parking will be free.
With Thanksgiving coming up on Thursday and the holidays fast approaching, Baltimoreans are getting busy with parties, family gatherings and other festivities.
As a result, local restaurants are only hosting a few special events this coming week – they’re likely to be packed no matter what. But don’t worry, there are still enough events popping up to keep you occupied all week long.
If Thanksgiving plans are still alluding you, might we recommend reservations for the big feast? As usual, the Tavern will be open and offering a special menu featuring all the traditional favorites– which they do oh-so-well. Their regular menu will also be available for those who just can’t go without their favorite Tavern burger. And of course, even if you just have to go to the in-laws for dinner, you can still sneak away for a little aperitif once the rest of the family is in their tryptophan and pecan pie coma. That’s because the Tavern will be open until 2am on Turkey Day. Now, that’s something to be thankful for.
Alright. If people want to throw tomatoes at us for recommending a Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot, fair enough. We’ve personally spent enough Thanksgiving adamantly rejecting the suggestion that we do anything but alternate between lying on the couch and feasting. So sure, if the idea of exercise on that particular day offends you, feel free to skip it. But if you’d like the opportunity to get your blood pumping (and build up a hearty appetite before the feast) signing up for a little 5K walk or run may just be the ticket.
